August Ipsy Glam Bag

 Wow! I can't believe it has been over 2 weeks since I last blogged. Time has definitely slipped away from the past couple of weeks. But hopefully, I can get back on a regular schedule of blogging again!
 
I wanted to show y'all everything I got in my Ipsy this month. Yet again, Ipsy didn't disappoint!
 
 
The theme this month is "Glamour Academy".
 
 
Pixi Lash Booster Mascara
 
 
It is in blackest black....my fave! :)
 
 
Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub
 
I was so excited when I saw this in the bag because I literally just watched a video on YouTube that day with a guru bragging about Michael Todd products. I have tried this out and I am really loving it so far! I can't wait to write up a review on it later for you guys!
 
 
Noya Lip Balm in Cherry
 
I was a little disappointed when I saw that I got this lip balm instead of the Urban Decay lipstick. But after I trying this balm on..it not only smells great, but also tastes great! (not that I ate it, but it tastes good on your lips) I love that it is all natural!
 
 
Chella Dark Brown Eyebrow Pencil
 
Sorry it's hard to see it. The sun was a little too bright!
 
I am excited and anxious to start using this product in my brows!
 
 
Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream
 
Definitely excited to try out this BB Cream! It might be a little too shimmery for my taste,
but we will see...
 
 
So that is everything I got this month.

Say goodbye to shaving...

I don't know about you, but I hate shaving! I feel like it takes forever and I always end missing spots here and there. So I decided to try out a hair removal lotion. I have tried different kinds before and they never worked, so I gave up hope on removal lotions until now.

 
Here is what they say straight from their website:
 
Get ready to bare more and wear less…in as little as 3 minutes! Our gentle, rich hair removal lotion formula contains Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E. Better yet, you get fast, smooth hair removal that lasts days longer than shaving…Mmmm! And now try our new aroma.

Dermatologist Tested.


How to use:

TO APPLY LOTION:
1. Squeeze lotion into palm of hand.
2. Smooth on a thick, even layer to cover hair. DO NOT RUB IN. Wash hand immediately after application.
3. Leave lotion on for 3 minutes. Then check a small area for hair removal.
4. Total hair removal depends on hair thickness. If the hair does not come off after 3 minutes, leave the lotion on for a few minutes longer. DO NOT EXCEED 10 MINUTES of total application time.


TO REMOVE LOTION AND HAIR:

1. Gently wipe off the lotion and hair with a damp washcloth. Do not rub.
2. Once all hair has been removed, RINSE SKIN THOROUGHLY with lukewarm water in the shower.
3. Pat dry.
4. Keep bottle tightly closed between uses.

 
 
Here is what I say:
 
The Nair Hair Removal Lotion is by far the best out there! It does exactly what it says it is going to do...remove your hair! It didn't work for me in 3 minutes, so I left it on for 8 minutes and it definitely worked! Hey, 8 minutes and your leg hairs are gone?!?! I will take it! It does have a little bit of the "hair removal" scent, but it isn't overwhelming. Once you wipe off the product you can barely smell it. I love that it is enriched with Cocoa butter and Vitamin E that helps add moisture to your body. The last thing I want is something to dry my skin out! The squeeze tube makes it very easy to use and helps prevent wasting a lot of product.

 I tried this on my legs, underarms, and bikini area and had great results with each area.

I definitely recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a quick and easy hair removal method!

Hey y'all! Long time no talk, huh?!
 Well, I am officially back from our vacation (sad face) and I am trying to get back in the groove of things! It is hard not having an hour nap everyday! HAHA

So I know I am a little late on this post, but I wanted to share with you what I received in my July Ipsy Bag. If you want to learn more about Ipsy, click HERE*.

Favorite Item this month:
Hmm, that's a tough decision! I am very excited about everything in this month's bag.
